About Me

Adrian Buford

Chicago, IL.

In a land not so far away, sits, somebody. In Chicago, thrives, the dude, teh legend. The techie, geeky, yet swagful infosec-pc-network-crypto-web/graphic design, automotive tech, engineer {yep! certified in that also} expert. On a serious note. I have made information security & computing my life for over 16 years and have seen everything from novice insider threats to those a little more advanced and persistent. I've laughed at user error and have cried over data corruption on a multitude of devices and networks. I left information security as a hobby {that i'm pretty good at} for a good part of my life. The times have changed and securing our everyday lives at home in addition to statisfying our employers requirements take time. Time i've finally decided to set aside. Time my customers don't have.

I code. I host. I design. I secure. I educate. I upgrade. I install. I consult. I'm no swiss-army knife... but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me key player where ever I am needed. I don't take on any client I cannot fully support. I don't offer to do any job I cannot complete.

I fix stuff.

Morally and semi-professionally obligated to protecting our national infrastructure.
